country has adopted them. chris: i'm chris matthews welcome to the show. with us joe klein from "time" magazine, the bbc's katty kay, nia-malika henderson henderson and david leonhardt. the president addresses the country and he will try to project his will that would block his legacy. opposition to barack obama in some quarters is searing. hear how sean hannity greeted the obama victory in november -- >> america wanted barack obama for four more years, and now we have him. by the way, good luck with that. chris: that was a bit sarcastic. today as the president take the oath, the new nbc wall street poll traces a geographic divide. 60% of americans who live in cities say they like the president personally, and like his policies. in the suburbs 43% like him and his policies. but in rural areas it's just 27%. and that's what you see playing out in congress. also inside the poll 6-10 strong republicans dislike the president personally as well as his policies. joe, there's a deep groove of resistance out there, and i guess the question is, how does the first term look, when you look
wrote in 1999. >> joining me now joe klein, journalist for time magazine. joe, how did the republicans come to this extremist point from what we have heard to president george w. bush resigning? there are a couple of things going on here. they are coming to an end. which is good news for the rest of us. there has been a 30 year drift since reagan to the right in the republican party. reagan when he made those statements didn't have to deal with rush limbaugh. he said something at that point and you also have a natural evolution of special interest groups and it is not just the nra. it is both sides of the abortion debate. it is some of the environmentalists. they take the most extreme position possible in order to raise money from their most devoted ne nat ticks. i know members who resigned in the past year because a lot of the stuff that was coming out from that organization before this election was really vile stuff about the president. and they have gone off the deep end. here is ronald reagan in a 1999 ceremony. >> i want to tell all of you here today something that i'm not sure yo
freed man and joe klein and the rest of the w elite mainstream media you just showed, they never gave president bush the benefit of the doubt when it came to national security issues that got, in tom freedman's words, messy. they paw lit sized iraq and afghan n stay. for them to say somehow conservatives are politicizing benghazi, which this is a disgrace. the personal representative of the president of the united states is dead in the street in benghazi and dragged through the streets and these policy elites in the media saying it doesn't matter. >> there are a lot of different facets to this. they requested security beforehand on numerous occasions . that security was denied. they knew what was happening in realtime. they they ever told the american people. then there is the cover up aspect that was ran very deep within government circles all to protect the president so he can cruise to re-election. it worked. >> well, i think another aspect is what gene kirk patrick called the blame america first syndrome. certainly president obama has it, butic so do the mainstream media. when the
to joe kleine and -- dish, we asked about would there be a merger with directv at some point? does that change your opinion? >> the media space is ripe for more consolidation and free cash flow, allows and encourages that happen. liz: we always say you cannot have a real rally without the financials going along and what would be the crucible that comes out of a financial pick? >> i want the company finding places to grow. most financials have grown their earnings because their balance sheet has gotten better and the cost side from hell. i want revenue to improve. goldman sachs is a choice. liz: you wouldn't mind if there is a management change where lloyd blankfein decides it is time and somebody else goes in? >> goldman sachs is a deep, rich company when it comes leadership. cheryl: or turkoman is your defense with raytheon and boeing. you are not staying away from the fire. >> this is my attitude. if you want to be a little more conservative and not buy stocks that have run but get some exposure, the defense space is cheap. most has reasonable cash flow but the fundamentals ira l
," joe klein of "time" magazine, two great humane journalists, thank you very much. >> thanks, gwen. >> thank you. >> woodruff: finally tonight, the very public and controversial school reform leader, michelle rhee. her tenure as chancellor of the washington, d.c., public schools was chronicled. reporting and new investigative work by his team are the foundation of tonight's "front line" on rhee and her impact. here's an excerpt about the chancellor's early efforts to make some big changes to the system quickly. >> reporter: with no time to waste, rhee had been crisscrossing the district, talking about ways to improve the schools. she kept her most controversial proposal under wraps: closing two dozen half-empty schools. schools that were draining the system of resources. >> it would have been extraordinarily unwise of me to have started this process by saying "so, i've going close some schools, what do you think?" i would lose faith immediately in that person you have to have a vision and strategy and methodology and data. then people can react to that once it's laid out. >> report
. msnbc ezra's klein. >> the joe by den that we have seen emerged is the one we know. i have seen him be concise, effective. very clear, on what objectives are and clear on what was possible and that seems to be the role he is playing inside the white house. it is a big role. it was born out of the increasing feel of biden. he makes these hilarious jokes. telling people they are going to have to spread their legs to get frisked at the senate. when he ran with president obama the idea of the obama candidacy was to get washington past it's partisan warfare. that new kind of politics has lead to many successes. it has not led to less partisanship. the one part that has been a bright spot in cutting deals and getting a working relationship is this old school senate drenched back room dealing. in a funny way it has worked in this new bitter era. >> karen, it looks like we are headed for a biden versus clinton presidential primary in 2016 and make others. but it looks like joe biden and hillary are going to be in there. i don't know that i can bear to think about 2016. but anything is possi
hitters here in washington about the president's message, "time" magazine's political columnist joe klein weighed in. >> i thought it was a really good, strong speech. but it was kind of the opposite of the first inaugural address i remember which was john f. kennedy's in that kennedy was announcing the beginning of a new era, new generation of leadership. the president was talking about the winding down of a terrible ten-year period in the history of the country. the economy is turning around after the crash, the wars are ending, and so it was a very different sort of speech. >> did he strike the right tone? >> i thought that he struck a pretty good tone but there was one thing to my mind, completely missing. he talked an awful lot and passionately, and rightfully so, about rights, about civil rights. he didn't talk at all about civic responsibilities. and the thing i remember best about kennedy's speech is ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country. that's one of the things really missing in our country now and it's gone away over the last 15 years. w
, don't cry when you meet a rock star if you're governor. joe klein talked about the president having a second chance. >> yes, he's saying we've seen a new barack obama since he was re-elected, a more forceful one, more determined president. you know, joe is bullish on what can happen during a second term, and he thinks that the hagel choice was a bold one. and i think, you know, obama has, you know, political leverage. elections have consequences, and he's saying everybody's got to face up to it. >> yeah, second terms are usually a curse. jon meacham? >> mixed bag. >> mixed bag. >> mixed bag. >> how do things line up historically for this president? >> you know, i keep thinking about president reagan, obviously. because he needed a big tax deal and he got one. and he was carrying on the main work because he didn't go to geneva, remember, until '85 in dealing with the soviets. people remember reagan's second term for iran-contra which i think is a little unfair given the magnitude of the cold war achievement that unfolded then. president clinton impeachment. and just kind of a wasted
cliff deal experts, "the washington post" ezra klein, and jared bernstein, since joe biden was so key in putting together this deal, give me your take on the deal. >> look, i think the deal was kind of a small step in absolutely the right direction. i'm not quite as bullish in many ways as you just sounded, although i thought your argument was very compelling. i kept telling myself as i listened to you, i thought this was kind of dysfunctional the way you just went through it. made it sound a lot better. and i thought you made a lot of compelling upon t inling points look i thought the revenue was a little bit light. i also thought the debt ceiling, the sequester, hits again, comes back in march, the automatic spending cuts. i thought the estate tax, the democrats met the republicans a little bit more on their side of the field on that one. but look, the general point moves in the right direction. $600 billion in revenue over ten years. the unemployment, i don't think you mentioned a set of refundable tax credits to help the low income people. all this is movement in the right directi
that cuts spending? this deal fails on most counts. it's a distressing failure of leadership. "morning joe" regular steve ratner tweeted, the only thing worse than this deal would have been no deal, or maybe not, he added. ezra klein wrote, obama isn't making it easier for rs to vote for this deal but probably thinks if the rs kill it they get all the fiscal cliff blame. >>> new information on secretary of state hillary clinton and the blood clot that has her hospitalized. the clot is located in a vein in the space between her brain and skull near her right ear. it did not cause a stroke or neurological damage. doctors say clinton should make a full recovery and she is making excellent progress. the blood clot is related to the concussion clinton suffered earlier this month. it was discovered during a follow-up exam sunday. >>> from amazing fireworks displays to ancient traditions to our favorite polar plunges. folks around the world marked the beginning of 2013 in their own unique way. nbc's kirk gregory takes us on a tour of all those crazy celebrations. >> reporter: the first major city
